Barrack of the Carabineers


The original barrack buildings dates back to 1844, when they were erected by the Royal Corps of Carabiniers to combat smuggling, in particular of tobacco, and keep watch over the coastline. During the military coup of 1936, the Carabiniers remained loyal to the Republic, and as a result were disbanded at the end of the Civil War. Between 1939 and 1970 the barracks were occupied by the Civil Guard. The building is located amid wetland flora, with flooded marshes, reeds, seablite and marsh samphire, along with significant populations of esparto grass. The peacefulness of the unspoiled beach where it stands means that various species of birdlife feed there, including the Kentish plover (which also breeds here), the Audoin's gull and the osprey.


From 1 September to 31 March, from 10 am to 5 pm. From April 1 to August 31, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Day off: Access closed on 25 and 26 December and 1 and 6 January.
